There’s no denying that things are a little bit gloomy at the moment. I’m trying to find some peace in the small things, spending time with my family, an hour of quiet crochet, the sunshine in my garden. But, it’s impossible to completely ignore the news. However, there are still slices of joy to be found. The rainbow has become a symbol of hope for us – from a painted picture to a crochet rainbow sitting in your window. So, I wanted to add a little joy, colour and hope to your day with this collection of radiant rainbow crochet projects.

Whether you’re just looking for a portable, palm-sized project to give you a bit of a boost, or a blanket-sized bonanza, Crafty CC has you covered with her Rainbow Puff Hexagon. This gorgeous burst of colour is beautiful in either design and would make a STUNNING blanket.

Celine’s blog is absolutely packed full of rainbow goodies, I always come away from it with itchy crochet fingers!

Hooked up in plump t-shirt yarn, this vibrant crochet rainbow basket by Cintia at My Poppet Makes is a super-quick project that packs a punch! Big enough to house toys, shoes or…more yarn, this basket is a lovely way to add some brightness to your home while being useful. I don’t know about you, but a basket that can hold yarn is always welcome here.

I’m absolutely in love with this bright beanie from The Craft Chair. Have you ever seen a lovelier rainbow? There’s something so bright and fresh about this pretty pattern. Plus, what could be more joyful that wearing a rainbow?

If you’re looking for a rainbow to hang in your window, then how about this perfect pastel project? This sweet little rainbow by Lisa Hooper has the cutest face and just look at those little raindrops! I absolutely love it and can’t wait to get it on the hook.

I don’t know about you, but when I’m snuggled at home, I think a blanket pattern is the perfect WIP. Not only are they satisfying to make, but you can keep cosy under them while you work on them! Win-win, no? Rainbow blankets are always eye-catching (keep your eyes on my blog over the next few weeks if you’re a fan of rainbow blankets…) and this one by Kirsten at Haak Maar Raak is just gorgeous.  The Larksfoot stitch is absolutely lovely and works perfectly with rainbow yarn.

I know, I know…this is the 6th pattern on a list of five. But, I couldn’t resist sharing my Abstract Blanket with you. It’s still one of my favourite personal projects and it would work wonderfully with a rainbow palette. The simple squares makes the perfect base for a rainbow of colours. I’d love to see some rainbow versions of this bright beauty popping up!

I also want to squeeze in a 7th…My Circle of Hope blanket is packed full of good vibes, rainbows and soft warmth. Perfect for showing someone you care.

I’d love to see your pictures if you make one of these projects. Keep up with me across social media at @bellacococrochet and be sure to tag your makes with #bellacococrochet so I can see them!

Also, rainbow-lovers keep your eyes on my blog this week – I have a VERY special guest post coming up…🌈
